Loved You First

He loves her. She doesn't know she loves him. Neither thinks the other loves them. It's your typical romance story. Niall Horan and Líadan Abbott had been best friends for as long as they could remember, he was her only friend. When Líadan moves out to London to pursue her writing career old feelings rekindle. Líadan realised her feelings for Niall at the same time he decides to try and move past his feelings for her. Add Harry and a girl called Rose into the mix and things go haywire.


9. Chapter 9

Harry and I have been discussing our fake relationship with management for the past two weeks.

I know I'm never going to have any actual romantic feelings towards Harry but pretending I do may help me get over Niall.

And deep down, I hope Niall will get jealous.

I'm signed a contract regarding my fake relationship yesterday.

Only Harry and I are permitted to know that the relationship is fake.

We can't have sexual or romantic relations with anyone until the contract has been altered or is up.

We have to "date" for at least six months possibly longer if rumours of Harry being a womaniser, Larry being real or Niall and I being an item getting worse.

We'll be going on a few more dates until Harry "asks me to be his girlfriend" in front of all our friends, then he'll tweet sweet things to me and announce our relationship in an interview.

I'm not going to worry about the hate because I'm not actually dating Harry so they can't convince me that he doesn't love me or that he's too good for me because I know that's true.

Harry's a great person and a really good friend. I hope he finds a really nice girl soon, I just wish he didn't have to fake date someone first to show his relationship potential.

(Niall's POV)

Harry and Líadan have been going on dates for about two weeks now. I've been seeing Rose for a little over a month and things are going really well.

I was a bit shocked that Harry continued to ask Lí out after their first date, I just never pictured them together.

Líadan is a complete nerd and Harry, he can be extremely nerdy at times but he doesn't normally let it show.

He's into all the things she is but he's sort of ashamed by it. He doesn't want to seem nerdy. He and Líadan seem like they would make really good friends but not a couple.

I haven't really gotten much time alone with Líadan since I've started seeing Rose and she's started seeing Harry which is crazy since we live next to each other.

We're hanging out today though which I'm very excited about.

"Niall!" Líadan yells when she opens the door.

"What's the craic Lí?" I ask but she doesn't respond, she's too busy squeezing the life out of me.

"I don't understand how you can hug me until I can't breathe but you can't sit up," I say shaking my head and smirking at her.

"Shut up Horan," she smiles and playfully punches my arm.

"So what's the agenda?" I ask entering her flat.

"I almost forgot! Dani showed me this awesome new talk-show! It's right here in London but it's really popular in America. It's called Colleen because the name od the host is Colleen, kinda like Ellen or Oprah. Dani thinks it's going to be really big here soon too. It's the geekiest show, Colleen has all these different celebrites on that have secret nerdy sides to them. A lot of them aren't even secretly nerds but they're still on the show. Some of the guests won't even admit to being nerds at first but Colleen gets it out of them. She's very good with people," Líadan rambles.

I love it when she rambles. It's adorable. But in a friendly way like if I were to find Louis adorable, I'm officially going crazy.

"That sounds like the perfect show for you. You're kinda famous since you're an author, maybe you'll be on the show," I suggest and her eyes light up.

"I doubt it. But maybe you will be at some point. You're into Doctor Who and Harry Potter and stuff," she says hopefully and I just shrug.

I'm not the type of person to be on that show.

"Anyway, I had something important I wanted to talk to you about. What would you think if I asked Rose to be my girlfriend?" I don't know why I'm asking her opinion, I would like to think it's because she's my best friend and I care about her opinion but more so it's because I want her to tell me not to do it, to tell me she has no feelings for Harry, to tell me that she loved me first, that she loved me before I ever met Rose like I've always loved her.

(Líadan's POV)

"Anyway, I had something important I wanted to talk to you about. What would you think if I asked Rose to be my girlfriend?" Niall asks looking at me with mixed emotions.

I want to tell him not to ask her out but I can't. I want him to be happy. I wouldn't be able to be with him anyway, I would be breaking my contract only a day after signing it.

"You should! I ship you guys all the way! Of course you're not my OTP but how can anyone beat Johnlock?" I ask referring to one of my favourite shows, Sherlock.

"Thanks, it means a lot to have your blessing. And we both know you ship Sherlolly more than Johnlock. You just like the idea of Johnlock," he says in all honesty.

Why would he need my blessing? Maybe it's some type of closure since he used to like me? At least I think he used to like me.

"Anytime bro," I say awkwardly punching his arm.

"Since when have you ever called me bro? That's not you at all," he says in dibelief but I just laugh it off.

Why do I always have to be so awkard? Even around my bestfriend.

Rose is most definitely going to say yes to Niall which means I'll have to see them be al lovey dovey, but I guess I'll have to be all lovey dovey with Harry too, at least while we're around people.

I wish we could tell our friends and families the relationship is fake but I don't really want Niall to know, I want to see how he'll react.

A/N: I tried to make this chapter long and good but it's neither. I'm sorry! But it was a quick update so that's good. I feel like no one is reading this, if you are please comment. It will make me feel good. Even if it's critisism.
